Honey, herself, continued to perform in the surreal looking studio. The eerie silence is something never before seen on the live TV show.
The Mannequin Challenge appeared in November and has gone gobal, with celebrities performing it, as well as sports teams including the England football team.
Honey G will be hoping her two performances can win over the public and progress to the next round – without the judges having to save her.
